Problem scenario: You run this command on a Linux CentOS server:
sudo mount -t cifs -o user=jdoe //220.127.116.11/contintshare /mnt/windows-share
But you get this error: "mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on //18.104.22.168/contintshare, missing codepage or helper program, or other error (for several file systems (e.g., nfs, cifs) you might need a /sbin/mount.<type> helper program)"
What do you do?
The error message is not clear or helpful. Replace "user" with "username", and try the command again. For example this command will work:
sudo mount -t cifs -o username=jdoe //22.214.171.124/contintshare /mnt/windows-share
